Marquee tool improvements (Renovation filters, Invert Selection)

Some additional functionality would be valuable for Marquee tool:


1. Option to have Renovation filter:

When I Want to delete elements in all floors in certain area I also need to switch also between all renovation filters and delete elements in them to be sure that particular 3D space is totally cleaned up.



2. Marquee Invert Selection Option:

When this option is selected it means that all elements outside marquee boundary will be affected. 


Example A: You can show 3D elements that are only outside of Marquee. Nice function when you want to cut out middle part of house/project


Example B: You can Delete All elements in All floors that are outside of marquee, and can be sure that file is cleaned up, no need to find elements that are flying around your project 🙂 Way of cleaning up.

For me its impossible to draw marquee that inverses selection because marquee cannot have openings in its selection.

When you use Find & Select with a marquee, you have these options.




And don't forget you can use marquees in the 3D window.

Seems to work OK with 2D marquee but not so good with 3D marquee.



Also with the 'Filter and Cut Elements in 3D' you can control whether you see what is inside or outside the marquee when viewing in 3D.

But you don't have a choice of completely inside of outside.

Hi @Benjamin Dani , thanks for informing us about the progress of this wish,

but can you tell us how we will see this feature done?

And why this wish exactly could have a progress from GS despite it has a workaround solution while many other vital ideas are stopping without any progress?

Thank you in advance.
